Subject Re: prevent disks from being created on primary storage volume
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 20:59:51 GMT
I think CS should have the ability to enable/disable a storage pool just
like we have it for hosts/clusters/pods/zones. Disabling it just disables
the pool for further vm allocation.
It would great if you could open an enhancement for the same in JIRA.
